derby weekend upon us. big fight tomorrow night. the nets and the bulls. it is going to be a good weekend. hope you enjoy. ♪ the o'reilly factor is on. tonight -- >> the f.b.i. continues to press her, including questions what about she said in a phone call she made to the husband after the f.b.i. started to look for him. >> what did she know and when did she know it? >> they have been searching pictures weres ifer days released. even then, did the wife katherine russell tsarnaev alert the feds? >> the widow insists she played no role helping the terror brothers but the story is becoming harder to believe. we'll explain. >> i always knew that it would have to be a black president who was approved by the elites. >> provocative words from supreme court justice clarence thomas. we'll have a debate.
5:01pm
>> we had one too many glasses of wine. we thought it was fine to drive. it was completely unacceptable. >> the tale of the tape. >> you better not arrest me. >> we show you reese witherspoon's showdown with a cop. >> i'm an american citizen. >> was she out of line? we'll report. you decide. you're about to enter the no spin zone. and the factor begins right now. ♪ ♪ hi, everyone. i'm laura ingraham in for bill o'reilly. thank you for watching tonight. immigration reform and the boston bombing. that is the subject of tonight's talking point memo. if you hear members of the gang of eight push comprehensive immigration reform, well, you have heard them repeat this tired line. "we must do something because the system is broken." but to say the system is broken is to remove responsibility from politicians who refuse to
5:02pm
enforce the current law and the individuals who willfully break them. mexico, yesterday, the president off-teleprompter by the way, said we shouldn't be bogged down on border issues. bogged down on border issues? does it sound like someone serious about enforcement? by the way, cbs news reported this week illegal crossings in one border area, have nearly tripled since january. that means promise of amnesty is a huge magnet. former mayor rudy giuliani told me last week on radio enforcement provision in the proposed bill will not work. since janet napolitano can waive most of the requirements. suddenly marco rubio has gone from saying the bill contains the toughest border control ever to it might not pass the senate if it's not strengthened. the meantime, immigration and custom enforcement announce it today effective immediately it
5:03pm
will track student visa holders to make sure they are enrolled in school. of course, they were shamed in to doing this because of the revelations that two of the boston bombers held violated student visa requirements. it's pathetic. oh, by the way, remember the national security entry/exit registration system supposed to give extra scrutiny for visa holders from countries the w terror ties? obama ditched it. the system is not broke bun the politicians are. that is a memo. now the top story. the latest in the investigation in the boston bombing. dzhokhar tsarnaev reportedly told the f.b.i. that he and his brother tamerlan originally planned the attack for july 4 but moved it up to patriots day because they finished building the bombs ahead of schedule. fox news confirmed that the feds believe bombs were assembled inside his brother's cambridge apartment. that raises new questions about the dead suspect's wido
5:04pm
widow. katherine. the female dna on the bomb part does not match her but she is caming to not know anything about the bomb built inside the tiny apartment. russell reportedly stopped cooperating with authorities. recall from the outpointbe that o'reilly said she needs to be investigated. >> we believe that the wife of tamerlan tsarnaev may have exposure here as well. they searched for the bombers for days before the pictures were released. even then, did the wife katherine alert the feds? did she do anything? >> bill: joining us from boston is michael graham, boston herald columnist and the managing editor joe drinell. >> good to see you. >> start with you. first, let's go to the july 4 revelation. that that was really their target date. they moved up the timing of the attack. because they, i guess they
5:05pm
were efficient putting together the bomb. potentially a lot more people could have died on july 4 if they carried it out that way. >> definitely. at the hat show, that the open empathy on the river. hundreds of thousands of people. packed together. its just chilling to hear that. chilling. boston marathons, tens of thousand of people packed together at the finish line on boylston street. this is cowardly, deadly and developing every day. >> michael move on to the wife of the dead suspect. working long hours as nurse's aide while he stayed home to take care of the baby and build bombs. baby in one room, bomb in another room. and yet we don't know what she said to the authorities. whether she has cooperated that much with authorities. very it will is known about
5:06pm
that. >> keep in mind, they were on the dole. getting benefit and she was getting stunt benefits. tons of money pouring in there. i don't know if she comes them sleep for a few hours a night. do you know how small apartments are in cambridge? the office was so small, if it's smaller it would have been adultery. no way to step around six or seven boxes of pressure cookers. honey, what is going on in here? there is reporting that has been contradicted later on. consistently the accounts are she contacted the husband after the photo hit tv. she didn't contact the cops or the feds. she contacted her husband. >> there is some concern political correctness might get in the way of the investigation. president goes out of his way not to mention jihad or the deeply anti-american feelings of the immigrants in the united states.
5:07pm
sense in islamic community there is too much pressure on tamerlan's wife. she is not accused of committing any wrongdoing. why imply or infer she knew about this. >> it's two points. no one made the call. and we found out when tamerlan went to russia he got in touch with people on jihadist side who were radicalizing him. a boxer from canada went to russia and got killed. so that is now part of the investigation. that is what happened. >> michael, the president when he addressed it, he talked about the self radicalization.
5:08pm
of tamerlan. his brother is a poor victim. the president didn't say that, but we have to be concerned about those who are self-radicalized of the united states. i don't know what self-radicalized means. >> self-radicalized, i moved myself to dagestan to hang out with radicals and i moved myself back to massachusetts where i went to the local moss tok get in shouting matches with the fellow muslims and i moved myself to west where i watch videos of the american killed in yemen. the imam. self-radicalized that he was taking in the radical information coming to him. something joe hit on. there is a sense of betrayal here i hear from the radio listeners and college readers about how people come to russia to flee violence. they come to cambridge, what happens? some of them choose to pursue violence against us. we had a welfare system, because we want to help people. they betray us by using the wealth that fund terror. we bring home students who would be studying in a trailer
5:09pm
park in mountains. they come to dartmouth and they know someone involved in a terror attack that killed people and hide evidence on his behalf. they don't help us out a little bit in the country that welcomed them. >> people gaming the system and it spills over with the immigration debate because they have student visa holders. americans are struggling out there. why are we giving benefit to people who are betraying this country and didn't ever buy in system of values bryant in the understanding of the basic first principles of the rule of law and so forth? people are upset about that. >> you are right. we gave tsarnaev family $100,000 plus money. ebt, food stamps, tuition help. and they turn around to say the country stinks. >> re-examine. let's re-examine how we do all of this. i appreciate it, gentlemen. thank you. up next on the run down,

if you have high cholesterol, here's some information that may be worth looking into. in a clinical trial versus lipitor, crestor got more high-risk patients' bad cholesterol to a goal of under 100. getting to goal is important, especially if you have high cholesterol plus any of these risk factors because you could be at increased risk for plaque buildup in your arteries over time. and that's why when diet and exercise alone aren't enough to lower cholesterol i prescribe crestor. [ female announr ] crestor is not right for everyone. like people with liver disease or women who are nursing, pregnant or may become pregnant. tell your doctor about other medicines you're taking. call your doctor right away if you have muscle pain or weakness, feel unusually tired, have loss of appetite, upper belly pain, dark urine or yellowing of skin or eyes. these could be signs of rare but serious side effects. is your cholesterol at goal? ask your doctor about crestor.

[ female announcer ] if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help. >> laura: in >> laura: in the impact segment tonight. how the media treats african-americans in politics. as you know, the press fawns for the most part over barack obama. but not conservative african-americans. supreme court justice clarence thomas recently weighed in on why the president receives such favorable coverage. >> did you ever expect to see an african-american president during your lifetime? is that something you thought would happen? >> the thing that i always knew that it would have to be a black president who was approved by the elites. the media. because anybody they didn't agree with, they would take
5:14pm
apart. and that will happen with virtually -- you pick your person, any black person who says something that is not the described things they expect from a black person will be picked apart. don't pick me. pick anyone who decided not to go along with it. there is a price to pay. somebody the media agrees with. >> laura: i clerked for justice thomas in supreme court in the early '90s. we're joined by reverend jacque degross to weigh in on the issue. what do you make of justice thomas' comments there? >> i appreciate his sensitivity from what he went through in the nomination hearings. but the fact of the matter is every african-american who stepped forward for major office at the presidential level and other office undergone excruciating
5:15pm
scrutiny. look at what obama went through. they talked about his momma, his birthplace, his pastor and religion. wreligion. nobody else asked for their transcript -- >> laura: we haven't seen. we haven't seen his crypt. >> nobody else for anybody else's? >> have they been withheld -- >> no one asked for them. >> laura: you think -- >> why would you ask for it? other than him being african-american and the implication for affirm tv action -- >> laura: wait. i don't want to get hung up on that. but you are saying that the reason people want to know his grades in college and law school is because he is black? >> i'm saying -- >> laura: really? >> no white candidate has been asked that? >> laura: because i believe people release their transcripts and for the most part you know what the gpa is. i don't think it's the reason they're asking for that. i don't know what the big deal is release the transcript.
5:16pm
let's move on to what justice thomas said. you speak all the time and talk to a lot of people. do you disagree that conservatives, african-americans, are held to a different standard or critique differently than more liberals, left-leaning african-americans in public life? justice thomas. do you think they are treated differently by the elite? >> perceived differently. consequently they're subject to scrutiny in the media. but no differently than the african-american media with the great support in their own community received by the mainstream media. >> so you don't think -- >> you don't think there -- if colonel west for instance, happened to be a liberal.
5:17pm
against defense of marriage or a bunch of issue, don't you think that colonel west would have got an different ride in the national media than when he was running for re-electio re-election? >> a lot of people neglect that media is about relationships. you said you clerked for justice thomas. and there is nothing wrong with that. >> laura: thanks. nothing wrong with it. great honor. wait, what do you mean nothing wrong with that? >> that's not the point i'm making. but the point is you have relationships. people have relationships and they allow people have access. that is central to the idea. >> so,b, colonel alan west and ben carson need to be nicer to the media figures to get better coverage? >> if they have views closer to mainstream america they would get -- >> the views are closer to mainstream america. we appreciate it. reverend, thank you so much. directly ahead the push for hillary in 2016 has officially but gun. she has too much to win the

>> laura: thank you for staying with us. i'm laura ingraham in for bill o'reilly. in the factor flashback segment, new unemployment numbers came out today and the stats are grim for black americans. unemployment stands above 13% in that group. about half that for white americans. 6.7%. recently the founder of black entertainment television network said this. >> this country would never tolerate white unemployment at 14 to 15%. no one would ever stay in office at 14% to 15% unemployment in this nation. but we had that double unemployment for over 50 years. >> laura: bill recently spoke with bob johnson. >> so, here is what i don't understand. 93% of african-americans voted for president obama last november. even though black employment is so high.
5:41pm
why? >> well, i think first of all, african-americans have immense pride in president obama as a president. they see it as a major accomplishment in this country. and embracing an african-american leader. and they are positive and hopeful, probably, more than anything else, that his leadership will make their lives better. >> all right, but it didn't turn out that way. he had four years to improve. the black unemployment rate. and it's not improving. so are you saying that african-american community en masse is voting on hope. hope it will get better but it hasn't gotten better. >> yeah. i would say, bill, african-americans have been living under this unemployment problem, this gap for over 50 years, if you look at the bureau of labor statistics. >> i have them here. >> african-american employment has been double that of white for over 50 years.
5:42pm
>> let me give you -- >> give you stats. in the year 2000. all right, when president bush was elected, first term. black unemployment was below 8%. it went up a little bit and down again in 2007. to 8%. under president obama that has risen from when the president took office, it was about 10%. it has riz o risen to 14%. there has been with everybody else, may have been a flow in black unemployment. let me ask you this: i believe that the primary problem in the african-american community is out of wedlock birth. 71%. that drives poverty. it makes educating kids harder because they are not supervised and they don't have a dad in the home many times. am i wrong on that? >> i think you are wrong saying it's the primary driver of african-american unemployment.
5:43pm
it's one of the social factors that african-americans face. to me the principal drivers are the failure of corporate america to hire enough african-americans who are qualified, for african-americans to get access to capital to start small businesses, great engine to create employment and legacy of long-term institutionmized racism that has plagued blacks in a situation for example, bill, the last 20 years the wealth gap increased by $70,000 among african-americans and whites. according to the pew research center. in addition, african-american median income is one-tenth of that of white americans. when you add the dislocation in the economy, not all of them caused in any way by the recession, but a big part of it, global competition. and other things in terms of the u.s. manufacturing of business, african-americans are usually the last hired
5:44pm
and first fired. >> do you believe's a skin color issue rather than performance issue? >> i have been convinced all my life -- i have been in business all my life. i have been quite successful as you might know. but i will tell you this, there are millions of african-americans who have the talent, the work ethic, integrity, ingenuity to be successful in jobs and in business, but you have to admit that anytime you have a situation for 50 years, dating back to the civil rights movement, when african-americans were making huge gains in fair employment and housing and legislation was enacted we spent more money on education than at any time in the african-american history, there is something here than just failure of family or failure of individual african-american to pursue a job. it has to do where the fact that the question of race discrimination lingers on -- >> you are laying it on the skin color and i can't tell

>> laura: in the friday with geraldo segment tonight, disturbing situation in sacramento, california. late last month a young couple, alex and anna nocolia took their 5-month-old son sammy to the hospital where he started to exhibit flu-like symptoms. doctors there told them their baby needed open heart surgery. but the parents wanted a second opinion. so they left with little sammy against the hospital's medical advice. that prompted the hospital to call police who showed up at the nikolia's home along with representatives from child protective services, and then they took sammy away from his parents. the entire incident was caught on tape.
5:50pm
>> laura: shocking, right? the good news earlier in week, sacramento judge returned custody to the parents. but cps will continue to monitor their case. joining me now from our new york studio with more details is fox news anchor geraldo rivera. geraldo, russian immigrant parents, told their child needed open heart surgery, a big operation. they wanted a second opinion.
5:51pm
how did that end up resulting in the child being taken away from them? >> start there. start with the fact they are, laura, russian immigrants. they came to the united states to the land of freedom. little did they expect that the state, the totalitarian entity would crack down on them and take the little baby from their arms in their home without a warrant and place the child in protective custody. they were no allegations as far as i know that these were abusive parents. you mentioned the conflict, the rub that came down. so here is the child born with a heart murmur, a child that is chronically ill and cared for at the hospital which is a fine hospital by most account. the parents watch the child being care for begin worry. worry about the quality of care and the nurse for example, administering an antibiotic to the child, even though the parents thought the doctor said an antibiotic in the current circumstance was not warranted.
5:52pm
they're worried as any parent would be worried about a little baby. what did they do in they say we need a second opinion. they take the child, the baby, if this is their fault -- they should have checked the child through the procedures but they were worried. do gent circumstances -- do gent circumstances. they give it to attending physician. allow parents to take the child home. before they do, the authorities, cops, are called to the second hospital, question doctors and the doctors say no, it's fine. take the child home. they do. next day child protective services at the door. awful scene. imagine if it's you and your child. >> laura: there are 3 million child protective service cases every year in the united states.
5:53pm
3,000 in protective custody. we need child protective services but we need them to be trained. a lot of them roll through quickly and they're staffers short termers in the system. and we are concerned with their level of training. needs common sense. >> not only that. they are never challenged. they have melancholy job. we never minimize the task they have. it's difficult and they have to protect the children but they have to listen to reason. this is not an abusive situation. these were not crazy people. these were not the foster parent who ashes from the cigarette drop on the baby. these were loving parents doing the best by the baby. >> laura: and they shouldn't continue to be monitored by state either. that's what we hear from the
